Regina Harris has it going on. Drop-dead gorgeous, intelligent and a successful freelance writer, the sassy 26-year-old seems the poster child for African American young professionals.But what would her colleagues say if they knew Regina was once a professional shoplifter and career girlfriend? That she was shot and almost killed while hanging out with a drug dealer?
Set in Harlem and Philadelphia, Satin Doll tells the story of a woman living in two worlds, and feeling comfortable in neither. The lovely Regina sips cocktails in Greenwich Village with the literary elite one night, and goes barhopping with her Harlem homegirls the next. Theres Yvonne, who discovers the lawyer she is dating is married, but decides to steal him away from his wife. Tamika, who finds out the prison inmate shes been loyal to for three years has married a white woman while behind bars. And Puddin, a cocaine sniffing good-time girl who will snatch off her wig to fight at the drop of a hat.

But when Regina falls in love with aspiring politician Charles Whitfield, she has to choose between her two worlds -- and wonder if her shady past will come back to haunt her.

I loved this book! I will quote one of the critics, Lillian Lewis, "A marvelous tale about not letting the past define one's future."
